Skills practice

I bought some of those little orange cones

the other day, and today I set up a figure 8 on the road to practice cornering. Also practiced bunnyhopping (J-hop style). The other day on the trail I felt really off technically, so figured I ought to brush up some.

I seem to be able to go higher on the hardtail than the full suspension. I put the cones on their sides and lay stake across them. I cleaned 6" like this. Putting the cones straight up and laying the stake across is 9.5 or 10" and I couldn't clean this on the FS.

The hardtail is in pieces right now cause I took the Black 80mm SPV off it to try out on the Hollowpoint. I'll be testing it out on Brush this week.
